How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment. Combine fruit and nuts in bowl. Add 1/2 cup flour and mix to separate pieces. Combine remaining 2 cups flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in small bowl. Beat butter in large bowl until light. Gradually add sugar, beating until fluffy. Beat in eggs 1 at a time. Fold dry ingredients into butter mixture. Mix in fruits and nuts.
  • Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets, spacing 1 inch apart. Bake until cookies are golden brown, about 10 minutes. Cool 2 minutes on cookie sheets. Transfer to rack and cool. (Can be prepared 1 week ahead. Store in airtight container.)

    These sounds so delicious. I think, no I know I could eat the entire batch myself. I love the dates and all the nuts.

    Mmmmm, very different and interesting, Peeta hon. I love dates - and the candied pineapple add sounds like a cool marriage. Love the nuts! Like you, I see this many nuts in a cookie recipe and I know it has to be delicious. Plus, I have never used Brazil nuts in cooking...wonder why? I love them.

    My momma always bought a huge bag of Diamond Mixed Nuts around Christmas. We'd fight over the Brazil Nuts and it was kind of hard to get all the meat out of the shells sometimes. It was a hoot.

    Great recipe...moving to my shortest 'must-try' list...and high 5. Thanks!! :) Vickie
